THE GOSPEL OF THE INCARNATION

Motivated by a strong conviction that the reunion of Christendom is strongly hindered by the fragmentation of the Gospel with each of several Christian traditions emphasizing different phases or parts of the Gospel to the distortion of the others, and leading therefore to misunderstanding and a real inability to comprehend each other's position, Dr. George S. Hendry writes appealingly and convincingly to correct the existing distortions. If one Christian tradition emphasizes Bethlehem and the Incarnation, while another points chiefly to Calvary and the atonement, each presents a one-sided picture of the Gospel because neither of them takes sufficient account of what lies between, in Galilee and Judea. This task of theological integration which studies and understands the whole range of the whole Gospel Dr. Hendry undertakes with competence and urgency in a book which is bound to attract the favorable attention of the many who are anxious to see the ecumenical movement go forward with at least deliberate speed.
